Littlest graduated from kindergarten this week. A milestone for sure. I fought back tears, replacing each one with a flood of praise for our favorite kindergarten teacher and the church school we’ve called home for a decade. Pre-school isn’t just for toddlers, you know. I’ve been raised up, too, by godly women who pour love, faith, and Christ’s light into every activity from playground popsicles to Christmas pageants.
The morning after she finished kindergarten, I walked into the kitchen to find Sarah reading her new Bible on my prayer couch. She told me God had a plan for her life and she wanted to read the whole story so she’d know what it was. She also told me she didn’t know Eve was a girl. I was confused and asked why she thought Eve was a boy. Sarah’s reply? Well mommy, since she sorta messed everything up by eating the apple I just figured Eve was a boy. Boys are always getting into trouble and stuff.
Aside from kindergarten graduation, I’ve had better weeks. I started this week off in the ER with a massively sore and swollen thumb. Tuesday I had surgery to remove the infection (cellulitis) that somehow lodged in my thumb. The whole turn of events is really quite odd and the only explanation the surgeon gave? You got poked.
I would love your prayers for complete healing. . .cellulitis can be scary and we are praying all the bacteria is gone!
Our little cabin in the woods is finished! My sweet friend Ginger emailed me this picture of Serendipity at the YMCA of the Rockies. We are counting the days until our family gets there. And, if you happen to stay in Serendipity this summer, we’d love to hear from you.
My monthly Y-Story column is on creativity this month. Shhh… don’t tell, but I was still a little hopped up on anesthesia when I wrote the post on Tuesday. Pretty please won’t you stop by the YMCA of the Rockies blog and leave a comment letting me know how you hope to spark creativity this summer? Reading your comments always makes my day!
Grateful for each of you.
